Green is Good, in so many ways.

Green is just one of those colours that makes you feel good when you see it. That is why a really lovely green lawn is so important to all of our lives. 

By having a beautiful green lawn right at your door step, means you always have that  comfort right there when you need it. 

Green is the colour of Go! Of Peace.  Of Hope, and nature. And according to the practice of colour therapy, green is the colour that invokes feeling of positivity, profitability, calmness and hope. It is the colour of healthy nature, and the colour that our brain tells us that everything is going to be “ok”! 

“The colour green is reassuring on a primitive level,” explains Karen Haller, a specialist in behavioural colour psychology and author of The Little Book Of Colour. “Early humans evolved to instinctively know that when they saw green, they’d be able to find food and water. (from Stylist magazine August 21) . And when our brain knows that our bodies will be nourished, it allows us to feel happy. 

It’s not only our eyes that want to see the Green to make us feel good, but also our bodies want to feel the Green. There is a technique called Grounding. Sounds weird, but it really just means walking with bare feet across the grass; to reconnect with the earth. According to Healthline “…Grounding, also called earthing, is a therapeutic technique that involves doing activities that “ground” or electrically reconnect you to the earth…One of the easiest ways to ground yourself to the earth is to walk barefoot. Whether this is on grass, sand, or even mud, allowing your skin to touch the natural ground can provide you with grounding energy.” 

Walking with bare feet across your lawn can help you feel calmer and happier

Although we have all moved into towns and cities, our bodies and minds are still longing for the full natural calming sensory experience of Green! 

The easiest, the best, the most convenient to all our busy lives, to give ourselves what we need, is to have a soft, Green lawn. Your lawn will allow you to see Green first thing in the morning, as you wake up and sip on your warm brew. Allowing you to have a positive outlook for the day.

At the moment with so many lock downs, and border issues, we are often unable to get out and about in nature to satisfy our need for Green. By having a Green lawn that you can walk across in  bare feet, or a soft Green calming place to sit on in the warming sun, your body can get its green fix. Your lawn is great place for calm relaxing times, as well as loud busy play. 

Getting outside and kicking a ball to each other, or throwing a toy for your 4 legged loved ones, gives you those wonderful good endorphins pumping through your body. 

Your lawn is not just the frame around your home to make it look pretty, it is also your grounding to nature. On elf the ways you can make yourself feel Good. Its your gift to yourself to ensure your mental and physical health needs are meet in the safety and comfort of your own home.

Its so easy to have a green space at your home to calm your mind and body. Get in touch with us on the farm, and we can arrange beautiful turf to come to your home to become your Green space.

New Years Grass and Lawns

Happy New Year!

I know, I Know. I am a couple of days late, but new years eve always takes it out of you doesn’t it? The late night is enough to drain you for a day after, let alone if you have consumed a little too much liquid as well….Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate! That is the golden rule, after New Years Eve parties, as well as after your lawn has been sitting in the hot sun all day. Getting tht wonderful water into your systems will mean healthier happier you and your lawn.

As I watched the sun rise over the farm this morning, while we were irrigating our paddocks (watering in the morning means that your lawn and our paddocks get a freshening cool down before the heat sets in for the day. And a lovely drink), I snapped this picture to remind myself of the Amazing new year ahead of us. The wonderful times are are set to come.

Give the Gift of Green

This Christmas there has been a lot of chatter about buying local to save our Carbon foot print. And what better way to store and save Carbon foot printing than investing in a lawn. Imagine the glow of your loved ones face with excitement and joy when they open their gift of a new LAWN!

When you look at a house the first thing you see is either the lack of or the Gorgeous Green Lawn. It is this green scape that defines if the house it ready and livable, and a happy home or if it is a work in progress. Now I am not saying that Coastal Turf can gift a happy home, but we can definitely supply the means to an end.

Imagine – Christmas on the green soft fluffy grass. New years with everyone complimenting you on your new fresh lawn. The kids rolling about playing on the lawn. The water fight in the heat on the day with Dad falling over w=and everyone else stacking on top. And then the quiet slow down of resting peacefully on the lawn after a long day.

What other gift can do so much!

Give your loved one a Coastal Turf Gift Voucher for as little or as much as you want (either in square meters or in price) and give the gift of soooo much, that continues throughout the year!
